Wow, this figure dates back

Wow, this figure dates back to my year of birth. It's fascinating to see how toys have gone from this to super-articulated Revoltechs and SHF's

Special Operations Replacement Team Analog?

"SORTACOM." I got a real chuckle from that one.

Wow! Man, I wanted this one

Wow! Man, I wanted this one so bad back then. Mostly the Ninja, but this one too. I had only ever run into the clear version of him and the Ninja, so I never ended up getting them.

Anyway, love the backwards launcher! I wonder if I would have even noticed, back then. I don't think I knew as much about that stuff then as I do now.

Silly McFarlane

That backwards Stinger ALWAYS bugged me. I think I chucked the missile because bleh. I wanted to love this figure so much, but the funky angles everything is sculpted at, like you said, it's basically a statue that they decided to cut up and add articulation to. All of those figures were pretty cool, I liked Psycho Mantis and Revolver Ocelot a lot, but they are far less articulated than Snake. The Ninja is probably the best of the bunch though, it's just a cool looking figure.

IIRC that time bomb is supposed to be the "timer bomb." SPOILER ALERT: after Snake is captured by Revolver Ocelot and is tortured, you can escape and recover your weapons. Ocelot places the time bomb amongst Snake's gear and you have to equip it and throw it away before it explodes and kills you.

Really great detailed review

Really great detailed review on this guy. Made me interested in a toy/character I would otherwise care nothing about.
